ZX2 racing at GVSU
auto-x/solo race at Grand Valley on 7-5-08. I didn't do the best in my
class but it was fun!
My ZX2, 2nd pass on track
My 2nd run at the track. Better reaction time. Better time in the 1/4.
Happy with the run for the 2nd time I ran on a track. Got a good base to
start from. Car is basically stock. Cold air, header and 2.5in piping.
Bad ass Escort ZX2
This ZX2 has been converted to rear wheel drive and has a 351 in it! This
car is SWEET!!!
Timing Belt - VCT Delete - Oil Pump Front Seal Replacement Ford Zetec Engine.
This video shows you how to replace the timing belt on a Ford Escort ZX2.
It also shows you how to delete the VCT gear for use of an adjustable gear
and how to replace the front oil seal. Other Zetec engines are similar
enough (from 1998 up, prior engines are similar but don't use VCT) that you
can use this video to do the timing but removal of other parts around it
(like the overflow bottle is in the way on some non-ZX2's) may not be the
same and not all Zetec's have the VCT mechanism. I used to sell this video
on Ebay and I've sold about 200 of them over the years and only once has
anyone complained about it not being useful and he had a Focus. He
apparently didn't read the listing where I said the video was shot on a
ZX2. Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this video helpful and please don't
forget to rate and share it.
You should also note that the Zetec engine in the ZX2, Contour, Mystique,
Cougar, Escape, and Focus (not SVT) are non-interference despite what a
mechanic or even a Ford dealer might tell you. I even show in the video
why it is this way and prove it by cranking my engine over with the belt
off and the cams locked.
Blowing up a zx2
This motor was out of a junk yard zx2. It was having a hard time starting.
Exhaust gasses were flowing in the
coolant over pressurizing it, and in the end oil was in the coolant as
well. We tried to destroy it using bleach in the oil and reving to 9k
eventually pinning the needle at what I can assume is close to 10k. It
didn't blow, and the car still starts. New motor is in the shop being
